Women in Rail Event

This evening we are proudly sponsoring the Women in Rail event which is taking place in Wiltshire, this event is to celebrate the launch of the WR South – Wiltshire regional group.

Women in Rail was created to improve diversity in the UK rail industry through providing networking opportunities and support for all women within the sector.

“With just 16% of jobs in rail filled by women, we need to understand how we can encourage others to join our industry and not just attract women to the railway, but also to keep, develop and promote them.  We need more women – not just directors and managers but engineers, signallers, graduates and apprentices too – helping us to build the better, more modern railway that Britain needs.” – Women in Rail

The event will be hosted by Anna Delevecchio, commercial Account Director for Amey and lead of the Women in Rail – South alongside Ebony Soltani-James. The event will include a number of speakers from influential people in the Industry as well as Q&A session.

There are a number of events going on in the UK for the next couple of months so don’t miss out on the opportunity to network with influential people in the Rail Industry. Check out the Women in Rails website for more information on events and latest news. http://womeninrail.org/
